We arc not quite satisfied that all the synonyms above referred to' belong to one
species, because our specimens from the Madras peninsula bear only female flowers,
while those from the '.eastward are all male. We have not, however, been able to
find any characters upon which to found a diagnosis between the two. *V^e know
from our own Khasia specimens that the degree of branching of the male panicle
varies very much, as well as the amount of hairiness of the stem, and the pubescence
of the under-surfaces of the leaves. The degree of division of the lobes of the corolla
is also a very variable character.
We possess panicles of fruit of another species of Cyciea, collected in the Khasia
hills, without leaves, and preserved in spirits. These drupes arc quite glabrous, ar-
ranged in panicles 8-4 inches long, of which the branches are very short. They
resemble very closely the female panicles of Mr. Miera' Cyciea deltoidea from Hong-
